Cars That Guzzle Oil - abc27

If your car seems to be burning oil and you have to top off your oil frequently, you have company. Consumer Reports’ latest auto survey covering almost 500,000 newer cars has identified several popular engines that burn quite a bit of oil. Consumer Reports has listed 30 cars with model years 2010 to 2014 as top oil burners. Consumer Reports’ auto experts say that it’s normal for cars to burn a little bit of oil as they age and get closer to 100,000 miles. Audi, BMW, and Subaru say that oil consumption is a normal part of a car’s operation. But Consumer Reports finds that 98 percent of owners of newer cars don’t have to add oil between oil changes. Subaru, Audi and Toyota are subject to class-action suits regarding the problem of oil consumption. If your car requires oil frequently, Consumer Reports says to take your oil receipts to your dealer and ask for a fix. Source:
